Factions and Reputation

Factions offer a variety of rewards, accessible based on reputation, that PCs can purchase with Achievement Points (AcP). Along with these faction-specific rewards, some rewards are available based on a PC's total reputation across all factions.

Reputation Tiers

There are a total of five Reputation Tiers a character can progress through with a faction. As a PC earns Reputation associated with a faction, they unlock additional benefits and access to more boons. A PC’s overall standing is represented by their Reputation Tier. These tiers are numbered 0 through 4, with a Reputation Tier of 0 representing no advancement within a faction, while a Reputation Tier of 4 is the height of prestige within a faction. A Reputation Tier of 0 is not a valid Reputation Tier to collect the rewards from boons based on Reputation Tier. To advance in Reputation Tiers, a character must collect the requisite amount of Reputation as detailed on Table 2–1.

All Factions

To calculate your current Reputation Tier for the purpose of all-factions boons, add up your total Reputation from all factions.

Boon List

A-E

Alien Observer

(Ally Boon)
The Wayfinders have attached an alien observer to watch over your missions and report back to its people.
Prerequisites: Wayfinders Tier 3
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: You bring along a noncombatant alien observer belonging to a species from outside of the Pact Worlds. This alien does not take part in combat. It speaks Common and its native language. The alien observes your actions, but it does not take part in any encounters; it refrains from involving itself in combat or making skill checks. Because of the importance of preserving the observer, while this boon is slotted, you and other characters taking part in the scenario have access to free body recovery.

If you gain Infamy at any point while this boon is slotted, you immediately lose this boon.


Ammo Caddy

(Ally Boon)
A skilled weapons expert follows you into combat, reloading your weapons at critical moments.
Prerequisites: Exo-Guardians Tier 3
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: You recruit a non-combat ally who can assist you by reloading your weapon. Once per adventure, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to have the caddy reload one weapon in your possession, as long as you have the requisite spare ammo to provide. The reloading occurs at the beginning of your turn or at the end of your turn (your choice). If reloading the weapon would take more than 1 round, this instead reduces the time to reload the weapon by 1 round. It is assumed the caddy carries a set of your ammunition appropriate for each of your weapons, but will reload only one weapon once per adventure.


Analytical Tracking

(Starship Boon)
Followers of Jadnura often prepare multiple contingencies and find themselves unprepared only when something completely unexpected occurs. You’ve learned how to perform actions as a science officer to help your allies operate tracking weapons.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers ( Jadnura): Tier 1
Cost: 2 AcP

Benefit: When acting as a science officer aboard a starship, you can perform a special version of the target systems action that allows you to prepare a coordinated strike. Rather than selecting an enemy system, you can spend 1 Resolve Point and select one tracking weapon aboard your starship. The gunner can reroll a single attack roll with that weapon.


Backup Info Check

(Slotless Boon; Limited-Use)
You have access to several invite-only infosphere data repositories and forums.
Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: Most scenarios include a mission briefing with one or more relevant skill checks that you can attempt to learn information important to the scenario. Some scenarios include skill checks prior to the PCs arriving at the adventure location.

Typically, these skill checks include a table with information provided based on varying DCs; with this boon, you can reroll one of these skill checks and use the higher of the two results. Skill checks occurring after the start of the first encounter of the scenario cannot be affected by the purchase of this boon.

Special: You can purchase this boon multiple times, but only once per skill check.


Champion, Acquisitives

Cost: 0 AcP

Benefit: Once per adventure when you successfully score a critical hit in combat against a significant enemy (Starfinder Core Rulebook 242) or succeed at Life Science check that is written into the adventure, you recover 1 Resolve Point, up to your Resolve Point total.

Special: This boon has no effect unless the character is championing the Exo-Guardians Faction this adventure.


Champion, Second Seekers (Ehu)

(Faction Boon)
Your allegiance with the Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) means you gain personal bonuses for completing related mission objectives, as well as championing the faction.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) Tier 2
Cost: 0 AcP

Benefit: Once per adventure, anytime you succeed at a Culture or Mysticism skill check that is written into the adventure, you recover 1 Resolve Point, up to your Resolve Point total.

Special: This boon has no effect unless the character is championing the Second Seekers: Ehu Faction this adventure.


Champion, Second Seekers (Jadnura)

(Faction Boon)
Your allegiance with the Second Seekers (Jadnura) means you gain personal bonuses for completing related mission objectives, as well as championing the faction.

Collector and Examiner

(Ally Boon)
The Exo-Guardians host a variety of professionals interested in researching alien life from the Vast. One such researcher would like to work with you.
Prerequisites: Exo-Guardians Tier 1
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: You have a growing relationship with a researcher among the Exo-Guardians. At the end of a scenario for which you’ve slotted this boon, you can return one, and only one, mostly intact cadaver
of a defeated significant enemy (Starfinder Core Rulebook 242) for the ally to study. Mark the creature type (such as aberration, fey, or ooze) of the collected cadaver on your Chronicle Sheet.

While this boon is slotted, you gain an insight bonus to Engineering, Life Science and Mysticism checks to identify creatures corresponding to creatures of the types you have collected. The bonus is equal to the number of corpses of that creature type collected, up to a maximum of +3. The bonus represents your correspondence between you and your examiner ally, and it does not mean the examiner is physically present during the adventure.


Computation Savant

(Starship Boon)
You’ve mastered the art of getting the most out of starship computers. Where others gain some insight from computerized assistance, you are able to take away far greater information.
Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: When operating on board a starship with a computer, that computer counts as having an extra node that only you can use. For example, if you’re on a starship with a mk 2 trinode computer, it would count as providing +2/+2/+2/+2, with the last +2 bonus being available only for a skill check that you attempt.

If your starship has no computer, you can cobble together a basic network with onboard systems that counts as a mk 1 mononode that only you can use to enhance your skill checks.

Special: A starship can benefit from only one copy of this Starship boon at a time.


Data Concierge

(Ally Boon)
As long as you have the ability to communicate with the Pact Worlds, you can call in an ally to assist on a failed skill check.
Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 3
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: You have gained the ability to contact a junior member of the Dataphiles in the Pact Worlds. Once per scenario, while outside of a combat situation and with access to an unlimited-range communication device (such as your starship or facilities in a cosmopolitan settlement), you can contact this ally. The ally allows you to reroll one previously failed skill check to acquire a piece of knowledge, such as identifying a creature or understanding a coded language. Successfully contacting this ally requires 1 hour.


Determined Medic

(Slotless Boon)
You’ve trained for innumerable emergency situations and are a capable combat medic in a pinch.
Prerequisites: Advocates Tier 3
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: Once per adventure as a standard action, you can treat a willing, adjacent creature to remove one of the following conditions: frightened, nauseated, paralyzed, shaken, sickened, or staggered. This doesn’t end the effect that caused the condition, and the target can regain the condition from any source as normal.

Special: This boon is not available until the beginning of Year 5 on May 27, 2022.


Digital Imp

(Ally Boon)
The Dataphiles offer you a digital construct that can assist with certain skills.
Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: The Dataphiles have provided you with a digital construct. While commonly called an “imp,” this digital program can resemble any creature you desire, along with a personality you choose. Lacking physical form, this intricate program can reside within a wrist-mounted computer, a hacking kit, or even inside a mechanic’s exocortex.

As a standard action, you can unleash the digital imp on an adjacent computer system , where it is able to perform the following uses of the Computers skill: Access Unsecured System, Destroy System or Module, Detect Fake Shell, Disable or Manipulate Module, Gain Root Access, or Hack System. The digital imp uses your bonus to Computers with a –4 penalty to the check and cannot take 10 or 20. The digital imp also doubles the time to perform any task, such as 2 full actions per tier of a computer system to hack a system. You can re-collect the deployed digital imp as a standard action when adjacent to a computer system where the imp is deployed.


Digital Presence

(Slotless Boon)
You work to propagate a thriving digital community.
Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 1
Cost: 0 AcP (see below)

Benefit: If you complete a scenario that you played online, such as by using a virtual tabletop or a play-by-post format, you earn 1 additional Reputation with the Dataphiles faction (regardless of the Faction boon slotted for that scenario).

Special: You can benefit from this boon only a number of times equal to your current Reputation Tier with the Dataphiles faction (maximum four total times at Reputation Tier 4). Each time you fulfill the requirements of this boon, mark it on your Chronicle Sheet along with the associated Reputation Tier.


Efficient Administrator

(Ally Boon)
You’ve arranged to take on the services of a manager skilled at directing other allies.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: You hire an administrator to help vet and assist certain allies recruited by your fellow party members. While this boon is slotted, all other PCs’ Ally boons gain an insight bonus to their skill checks equal to your current Reputation Tier with the Second Seekers faction. If the ally performs a combat role, then they instead gain an insight bonus to their ability DCs, attack rolls, and saving throws equal to half your Reputation Tier with the Second Seekers.

Special: An ally can benefit from only one copy of this boon at a time. This has no effect on Ally boons that do not have a skill check, combat roll, or DC-based effect.


Enhanced Shield Regeneration

(Starship Boon)
You’ve learned how to get the most out of your shields, pushing them to the limit to survive the rigors of special phenomena and starship combat.
Prerequisites: Wayfinders Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: Once per starship combat, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to push your starship’s shields to the limit. The starship regains a number of Shield Points (SP) equal to the starship tier × your current Wayfinder Reputation Tier. You can assign these SP to any facing, or divide them among any number of facings.

A starship can benefit from this boon only once per starship combat encounter.


Enhanced Targeting

(Starship Boon)
Through intense computational mathematics, you can temporarily rig a weapon to fire well beyond its normal range.
Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 1
Cost: 2 AcP

Benefit: At the start of a starship combat encounter, you can increase the range of one of your starship’s weapons. A short-range weapon becomes medium-range, or a medium-range weapon becomes long-range. This effect lasts for the first 1d3 rounds of the starship combat, after which the required computations become too complex to maintain. This boon has no effect on long-range weapons.

Special: Multiple copies of this boon can be used on a starship, but each copy must affect a different weapon.


Experienced Diplomat

(Slotless Boon)
Your time with Luwazi Elsebo has taught you how to juggle the needs of disparate parties and smooth over diplomatic missteps.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: Once per adventure, when you would fail at a Diplomacy check that’s written into the adventure, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to reroll that Diplomacy check. You must use the second result.

Special: This boon is not available until the beginning of Year 5 on May 27, 2022.


Expert Gunnery

(Starship Boon)
Through repeated exposure to the rigors of starship combat, you have learned about how to put a key shot in exactly the right place.
Prerequisites: Exo-Guardians Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: During a starship combat encounter, when your ship scores critical damage against an opponent, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to reroll the critical damage effect. You must use the
second result.

Special: A starship can benefit from only one copy of this Starship boon at a time.


Expert Scanner

(Starship Boon)
You believe information and preparation are integral to a Starfinder’s success and have learned a few tricks to get the most out of your starship’s sensors.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: When you utilize a starship’s sensors, you increase the modifier granted by those sensors by 2. This doesn’t increase the range of those sensors. For example, if you’re on a starship with basic short-range sensors, you treat the sensors as having a +4 modifier, rather than a +2 modifier.

Special: A starship can benefit from only one copy of this Starship boon at a time.

Special: This boon is not available until the beginning of Year 5 on May 27, 2022.


F-H

Field Trainee

(Ally Boon)
A Starfinder trainee accompanies you on field missions to gain further experience.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) Tier 1
Cost: 2 AcP

Benefit: You bring along an ally who assists you in and out of combat. Once per adventure, you can direct your trainee to perform the aid another action (Starfinder Core Rulebook 133) or provide covering fire (Starfinder Core Rulebook 246). Your trainee is considered to have a +3 bonus to all skill checks and a +5 ranged attack roll bonus. You can direct your trainee to provide this more than once in an adventure, but each use beyond the first requires you to spend 1 Resolve Point.

Special: While the trainee can affect combat encounters, they are considered a noncombatant and not tracked during combat.


First Contact Step-In

(Social Boon)
When not engaged in field missions, you pore over Wayfinder briefings about various first contact missions.
Prerequisites: Wayfinders Tier 1
Cost: 2 AcP

Benefit: When an ally fails a skill check during a first contact situation—specifically when encountering a previously undiscovered species—you can spend 1 Resolve Point to immediately attempt the same skill check. If the result of your skill check is greater than your ally’s failed attempt, use your result to determine the outcome. You can use this ability on any skill check so long as it relates to a first contact encounter.

A common example would be using skills like Diplomacy or Intimidate on a newly encountered race, but attempting a Computers check to learn from an alien network about a new species would also be appropriate. Exactly when this boon can be used is up to the GM’s discretion.


Hireling Access, Basic

(Ally Boon)
You can requisition basic assistance from the Starfinder Society.
Prerequisites: All Factions Tier 0
Cost: 2 AcP

In the AcP boon store, each skill set below is listed as a separate boon.

Benefit: You bring on a non-combat ally that can assist with a certain set of skill checks. This ally can perform the listed skills with a total bonus equal to your level. You must expend any necessary actions and be in range to perform the action yourself. The ally’s result cannot be modified by class abilities or spells, but can be improved by a successful aid another action. The ally can attempt a given skill check only once, cannot retry a check, and cannot take 10 or 20 on a check.

You cannot use the hirelings skills except recall knowledge in combat, and the hireling cannot be affected by, or affect combat, and cannot be harmed unless willfully endangered, and has no effect other than performing the selected skill checks.

When you select this boon, you must select one of the following sets of skills.

  • Diplomat: Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate
  • Medic: Culture, Medicine, Survival

(Ally Boon)
You can requisition amateur assistance from the Starfinder Society.
Prerequisites: All Factions Tier 1, Basic Hireling Access
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: This boon acts as Basic Hireling Access, except the total bonus to your ally’s skill check bonus is now equal to 2 + your level.

Special: This boon supersedes the skill bonus used by Basic Hireling Access. When slotting this boon, you select any skill set from Basic Hireling Access that you already purchased but use the improved skill check bonus instead.


Hireling Access, Professional

(Ally Boon)
You can request the assistance of a professional agent from the Starfinder Society.
Prerequisites: All Factions Tier 2, Amateur Hireling Access
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: This boon acts as Basic Hireling Access, except the total bonus to your ally’s skill check is now equal to 4 + your level.

Special: This boon supersedes the skill bonus used by Basic Hireling Access. When slotting this boon, you can select one skill set from Basic Hireling Access that you already purchased but use the improved skill check bonus instead.


Historical Analyst

(Starship Boon)
Ehu Hadif teaches that one can always look to the past in order to better predict future events. Perhaps there is no better practical application for this mantra than the dance of starship combat, where knowledge of past events can help influence the outcome of current battles.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) Tier 1
Cost: 2 AcP

Benefit: When acting as a science officer onboard a starship, you can perform a special version of the target systems action that allows you to assist your gunner with a tidbit of past knowledge.

Rather than selecting an enemy system, you can spend 1 Resolve Point. One gunner on your starship gains a bonus to all gunnery checks equal to half your ranks in Culture (minimum 1), though this bonus can never be higher than twice your Reputation Tier with Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif). The bonus lasts for one combat.


I-O

Infamy Reduction

(Slotless Boon; Limited-Use)
You eliminate some of your bad reputation.
Prerequisites: All Factions Tier 2
Cost: 8+ AcP (see below)

Benefit: You reduce your Infamy by 1.

Special: This boon can be purchased multiple times; each purchase is for a single reduction of one point of Infamy. The first time a character purchases this boon, it costs 8 AcP. Each later purchase by the same character costs a cumulative +8 AcP (8, 16, 24, etc.).


Instructor

(Social Boon)
You dedicate some of your time off to training an up-and-coming Starfinder recruit.
Prerequisites: Second Seekers (Ehu Hadif) Tier 1
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: This boon represents time spent outside of adventuring that you’re taking to train a potential new Starfinder. At the end of every adventure you have this boon slotted, record the total amount of Reputation you earned from Scenario (not Faction) Objectives. You can expend your Downtime at the end of an adventure to increase the amount of Reputation recorded for this boon by 1. Once you have accrued 40 Reputation with this boon, your student has come into their own and is ready to become a full-fledged Starfinder (a new character). Mark the Chronicle Sheet where you accomplished this, and keep a copy with your new character.

When your new character reaches 5th level, instead of choosing four ability scores to increase, you can choose five. Otherwise you follow all other rules for leveling up. This bonus applies only at 5th level.

Special: You can apply this boon only to one new character, and only once the objectives have been completed.


Known Quality

(Social Boon)
You have become a rising celebrity backed by your faction.
Prerequisites: Acquisitives Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: When you have this boon slotted and you attempt a Day Job check at the end of a session, multiply your total earnings by your Acquisitives Reputation Tier. For example, if you are Tier 3 in the Acquisitives, you multiply the result of your Day Job check by 3. Apply this additional multiplier after doubling the result of your Profession skill check and determining your total earnings.

You have friends from all over the galaxy and have been exposed to countless languages. This linguistic exposure has made you adept at decoding messages.
Prerequisites: Manifold Host Tier 3

A skilled linguist accompanies you as a translator on missions.
Prerequisites: Wayfinders Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: You bring along a noncombatant translator skilled in several languages. In addition to Common, the translator knows a number of languages equal to your current Reputation Tier with the Wayfinders faction + 1. When you purchase this boon, you must select the languages known by the translator. These can be any languages listed on page 41 of the Starfinder Core Rulebook or any unique language you’ve encountered in a previous scenario.

When your Reputation Tier increases, you can add an additional language to those known by your translator.


Loyal Friend

(Slotless Boon)
Your strong bonds of friendship help center your thoughts.
Prerequisites: Advocates Tier 1
Cost: 2 AcP

Benefit: You gain a +1 morale bonus to saving throws against the confused condition. When you have the confused condition and would be forced to attack an ally, you instead do nothing but babble incoherently.

Special: This boon is not available until the beginning of Year 5 on May 27, 2022.


Mnemonic Editor

Tetrad Certified Translator

Technological Item
Price 500
Bulk L
Capacity: 10 Usage: 1/hour
This elaborate datapad has several additional audio receptors to capture nearby sounds. If you don’t share a language with creatures you encounter, you can activate this device to collect basic linguistic information. The device requires 10 minutes of observed conversation to gain enough information to operate.

The device then acts as a rudimentary translator. It does not allow you to converse with creatures with whom you don’t share a language, but it can relate very basic information. Examples of statements the device could interpret would be: “come with us,” “lower your weapons,” or “leave immediately.” The device cannot parse proper names, including personal designations or the names of items and places. Some extraordinarily complex or obscure languages might not translate clearly with this device.

Prerequisites: Second Seekers ( Jadnura): Tier 2
Cost: 4 AcP

Benefit: At the end of a session, you can harvest parts of your plant and use them as part of a medicinal concoction to heal 1 point of permanent ability damage, though you can use this ability healing only on yourself.

Alternatively, you can use a part harvested from this plan to increase the effective caster level of any one spell cast by an ally or purchased as a service at the end of the session by 2 without increasing the cost of the spell. The spell receiving this benefit must restore hit points, remove ability damage, or remove an affliction (such as a curse or disease). This caster level increase does not stack with other effects that increase the spell’s effective caster level. You can use this secondary effect on a spell purchased by an ally.

It is assumed that you and your group manage to somehow make your way to the next encounter in the scenario if there is one. This boon does not count the starship combat encounter as being completed, so it is still possible to miss out on rewards from the encounter.

Normal: The destruction of a starship can lead to severe repercussions, as detailed in individual scenarios.

Special: You can purchase this boon multiple times.


Studious Researcher

(Slotless Boon; Limited-Use)

Mark of Leadership

(Slotless Boon)
